BISC 330L – Biochemistry Laboratory Syllabus & Schedule 3 LABORATORY POLICIES DURING LAB You will be expected to come dressed in appropriate attire. All students should be wearing closed toe shoes; NO shorts should be worn in the lab. ALL students must wear a lab coat and other proper PPE while inside the lab. If you are not dressed in proper attire you will not be allowed to stay for lab. Students are expected to come to lab prepared. This means you should have reviewed the experiment procedure BEFORE coming to lab. You should either print the procedure or write it in your lab manual BEFORE entering the lab. If you have a question regarding the experiment your instructor will ask you to bring your lab procedure with you. Students are expected to participate with the experiments, clean-up, and disposal of waste for every lab. In the instance that a lab station is left unsatisfactorily then 10 POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED from your overall grade PER observation. If a specific lab station cannot be identified then the ENTIRE CLASS WILL BE DEDUCTED 10 POINTS. It is the responsibility of everyone to ensure the lab is maintained. POLICY ON LAB MAKE-UP OR SUBSTITUTION If you missed your regular lab due to a serious illness or emergency which prevents you from attending school, you may attend another open lab within the same week. No make-up lab will be offered once the week is over. Please send an e-mail request to the administrative TA (or lab manager if there is no administrative TA) within 24 hours of your missed lab to make arrangements for make-up of missed content.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
